Bay Area Insomnia Treatment

Complete, one-on-one professional insomnia treatment so you can sleep again.

Sleep is something we all have done naturally. We spend one third of our lives asleep, and the effects of poor sleep can impact every aspect of life; especially memory, mood, and the overall ability to enjoy your life.

With specific expertise in sleep medicine, we employ the most natural, conservative, and effective solutions to restore this most essential part of life and health. The goal of our Bay Area clinic is to treat your insomnia so you can sleep soundly again, and keep it that way, ideally, with as little or no medication as possible.

At Menlo Park Psychiatry and Sleep Medicine, as part of our program clients see two specialists – Alex Dimitriu, MD and Lauren Varma, NP with complementary expertise in sleep disorders, pharmacology, and behavioral treatments for insomnia for the best possible outcomes.

Insomnia and Sleep Disorder Services Offered:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) for insomnia – an effective and proven method to improve and maintain sleep with  minimal or no medication.
  • Medication – when needed, we’ll work together to find the most minimal and conservative medications to help you sleep when you need to – and we’ll continue to work on techniques to further reduce your need for medication going forward.
  • Comprehensive care – In addition to a complete evaluation of sleep issues and patterns, we always explore daytime factors that may be contributing to poor sleep. We’ll explore factors such as stress, anxiety, and daily habits that may be hurting your sleep at night, and give you the tools to support healthy sleep habits from every possible angle. With a background in both Sleep Medicine and Psychiatry, we offer a unique approach to achieving the best possible outcomes.

ONE in THREE adults suffers from insomnia – whether it’s trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or any other sleep problems affecting your sleep schedule; a lack of sleep and fatigue can have tremendous impact on focus, energy, mood and productivity.

Insomnia most commonly results in daytime fatigue and night time frustration. By day, low energy can result in low mood, and increased anxiety – as many as 40% of patients with insomnia will also have a coexisting psychiatric condition – most often depression and or a panic disorder. Unrestorative sleep also causes memory impairment, has been associated with immune dysfunction, and can also exacerbate pain symptoms.

With expertise in sleep medicine and psychiatry, there is no aspect of day or night that we cannot improve together.
